Why Does Ray Comfort Think It’s Ok to Lie?
In his new book, You Can Lead an Atheist to Evidence But You Can’t Make Him Think, Ray Comfort makes the assertion:
Darwin was nothing but a blatant racist, a bigot of a man, who held to the belief that black people are inferior to whites. (p. 20)
All the evidence we have about Darwin says exactly the opposite. He went against the zeitgeist of his day by saying that slavery was an unjust and racist practice. There is much more evidence of Darwin’s progressive views in this letters. And it’s evidence Ray Comfort has the ability to get for himself. So, is Ray Comfort lying on purpose? I’m not sure. I don’t put it beyond him, but he also made that really stupid banana video. Apparently he can’t tell the difference between a cross bread cultivated banana and the handiwork of an imaginary being.
So, why does Ray think it’s ok to lie? He claims he is attempting to attack sin, but his methods are far from honest. I’ve seen this type of tactic with other proseltizing Christians as well. They will lie, cheat, and steal to get souls; it’s a dishonest method that does not make me trust them.
and now … a much better video
